Christmas is coming earlier thanks to a friend, Paula. Well- a friend of friend, who wanted to go to Chanel, which was a very bad move. I never thought that I’d leave with a bag in my hands, which I did. I got myself that pair of Chanel espadrilles which every fashion bloggers seem to have. I got it in leather though. When I tried it in the boutique, it was so smooth and comfty. I was totally sold on the spot. After being told that it was the brand new stock delivery and they only had one size for each shoe model, it convinced me further more to buy it. I left the shop all happy and smiling hoping that summer is around the corner.
Paris is a really beautiful city especially during this festive season. Light decorations are up everywhere. People are buzzing around everywhere preparing christmas presents for their loved ones. From the Chanel store, Paula and I walked to Place de Vendome and to Opera. The wind was icy cold. Funnily, we bumped into a crowd of fans waiting for Infinite when we went to Pierre Hermé near Opéra. It’s strange because I never have luck with celebrities, apparently neither does Paula. It would seem to me that negative + negative leads to positive luck. Infinite is a korean boyband who are having their world tour. I hardly know them, but Paula is their fan, so we waited for sometime, till we were frozen- to see L zooming out so quickly that I hardly saw him at all. It was funny to see that the french were really curious who all the fans were waiting for. Almost everyone who passed by were asking non stop. I was actually surprised that some actually knew them.
As quick as how L left, we also quickly left to go to Galerie Lafayette to warm ourselves up. The streets were flooded with people everywhere. It was impossible to move around at Galerie without worrying about squashing our Camelia flower. We were sardined compactly, moving in lines just to get to the escalator. It was super crazy, I’ve never been to any places like that. I guess it’s the christmas shopping that everyone’s busy with. We ended the day with a new YSL Rouge Pur Couture, some escargots and foie gras for Paula to taste real french food, not forgetting smiling and aww-ing at Kim Tan and Choi Young do even if the ending of episode of 16 was so sad.

And YES. I’ve finally moved to Paris. New journey begins as imma step into the adulthood of working life! The thing that I’ve always been ranting about since being a poor student! It ain’t easy looking for housing, for someone as picky as I am plus all the add ons of little criterias that could improve my life, plus some problematical issues, I gave up. Through contacts, I found myself in this beautiful apartment. It has the biggest bedroom I ever had and a princess bathroom with surrounding mirrors to admire myself (just kidding ). Unfortunately, internet doesn’t reach my room So I’m forced to keep my iMac outside my room. Funnily internet only reach to my room’s door So it’s kinda sad for me, I thought I could enjoy watching movies on my huge bed with a view! but my plan failed for now
I haven’t met any of the roommates besides the owner. I’m kinda worried if someone pops into the house but I don’t know who, LOL. I’m totally alone this weekend in this huge apartment. It feels so seriously quiet yet I’m a little afraid to blast a bit of Seungri’s Let’s talk about Love. In case you don’t know. I have never been a “live-with-a-room-mate” person. I’m kinda independant and needed my own quiet lazing space. Plus I always needed my own personal kitchen where I can feel comfortable chopping up food and concocting fattening mixtures. This is basically a whole new level of adventure, and I hope I can hang on to it!
And I stupidly forgot a lot of things, such as bringing more warm clothes (since it’s Paris, it’d colder ) … All for last minute packing. I’m already hoping to make a trip home to grab more stuffs!

Probably over 10 years have passed since I last stepped into a Hippodrome. My memory of it over the past few years, the hippodrome was a pretty old one. There were even ponies, for kids to ride. The place wasn’t exactly clean with those ponies littering around So my overall impression of the hippodrome was smelly, dirty and messy. Now 10 years later, the hippodrome had been completed renovated. Over 2 million euros was spent (if I wasn’t wrong) and was newly inaugurated in 2013. I was shocked when I walked it. Smell of the summer heat, lots of people, solid walk ways instead of soil. Everything was clean and perfectly new. Hippodrome is all about horse racing and betting. I didn’t participate in that. I merely went as there was an event with dad’s company. I thought I should give the place a new chance! Isabelle love horses, so why not. Unfortunately, Letty was really sick The horses were strong, tall and beautifully groomed. I like the black horse no. 3 best. I don’t know anything about horse though, just a feeling. Horse no.3 came in number 3 in the second race. There was another gold/tan beautiful horse, but unfortunately, he/she (i forgot) came in among the last three.
Besides that, how are the photos? Photos marked with an star was taken by Isabelle’s DSLR, while the rest was taken with my Galaxy Camera. I was lazy and didn’t want to bring my Canon along. It was a good time to explore the galaxy camera. I gotta say that the x21 optical zoom is pretty good. Didn’t expect that I’d be able to capture the departing line of the race!
